Savaran brings together a collection of ten new tracks recorded between 2012 - 2014 for the album The Spaces In Between. This is his first full album release on the Ember Music label although previous tracks have been included on the compilation Ember Music Vol.1, on Ember Music mixcasts and in collaborative works with other Ember Music artists including Slaphappy Mortician and TraiSkin.

The album has dual layers of meaning that intertwine. On the one hand this is a personal interpretation of daily interactions with sounds heard and unheard that are fused with processed digital, analog and modular electronics. On the other hand the music reflects the artists emotional response to unfolding events taking place worldwide as a result of the 2008 recession, the rise of religious fundamentalism, the dramatic effects of climate change and the disconnection of humans from nature. Sound and emotion both combine on this album at the spaces in between.

Review from A Closer Listen - Electronic Observations #5 30/10/14 by Jeremy Bye:

We’ve covered Savaran‘s work before, but never in a solo album-length format. So it’s high time we corrected this oversight with The Spaces In Between, a record that touches on both pleasant, floaty ambient and more industrial, dark ambient without committing wholly to either. Savaran instead finds himself occupying the space in between, where one track is all shimmering, swooshy synth waves, and the next is characterised by grainy shards of digital crunch, but elements of each crop up on most of the tracks. Savaran’s been making ambient music for a good while now and it’s clear on this record he’s fully in command of his tools. “Signals Of Distress” is a particularly dense ambient excursion, while “Resistance” is the only place to locate a beat, and even then that is held back for maximum effect. The most impressive track here, though, is the least typical; closer “Glade” swaps the multi-keyboard layering for sparse electro-acoustic bowed strings, field recordings of birds and a distant choir – it’s a rather magical concoction and suggests there’s more in the spaces in between than you might think.
